I love the holidays! But what I don’t love is the “gift look”. Yes you’ve all seen, the look where they say “omg, I love it soooooo much!”, but where you you know they want to throw it off the empire state building. Well I’m setting out to keep that look from happening, at least to you, with these universally-loved holiday gifts.

For the makeup lover-

Check out the pictures of Jessica Love Hewitt below-

And now check out the photoshopped one of her-

Here she is photoshoped. The difference is just, well... wow.

Here she is photoshopped. Still beautiful, but a lot different.

Yes I know these pictures our old but I thought I might as well share them with you, because they photoshop is just so horrendous. Just goes to show you can’t always trust what you see in magazenes or the web, whether they’re photoshoped to be skinny or overweight.

We all love desserts. You’d have to be a turtle to not to like dessert. But desserts are bad, and fruit is good, and all that nonsense means we shouldn’t eat dessert, right? Wrong, if it’s this dessert you’re eating.

I found this recipe at

Fall is a time when I useally splurge and eat more. I mean we have thanksgiving, and of course bikini seasons over so why not eat that cookie? Plus as it gets colder lots of summar activities aren’t possible anymore, like outdoor swimming. But there is 1

Mmmm, apples!

Mmmm, apples!

activity that is good for you today and the next. But what is it?

Apple picking! One of falls most fun activities is also one of the healthiest. Not only do you get to walk around you also stretch your body picking high up apples, and you eat lots of healthy fruit (just avoid the cider doughnuts)! Who knew something could be so yummy, and healthy?

So grab a basket and a sweater and get your apple picking on!

This picture has been causing a lot of commotion, good and bad. It was a tiny picture in a magazine, yet hundreds wrote in and said they loved it. So what is this picture? I’ll give you a hint, it’s on ‘Glamour’.

This ‘Glamour’ pic has attracted people from all over the world, and the controversy is huge. Thankfully most of it is good, but in some peoples’ eyes this picture is pure evil. And where can you find this famous pic? Right below.

This picture shows 20 year old plus sized model Lizzie Miller. This is the picture that has started a huge discussion on Glamour and lots of comments. The waves this photo made were so big, the editor-in-chief and Lizzie even appeared on the ‘Today’ show to talk about it. The post on Glamour has gotten over 900 comments (isn’t that crazy?) and even more comments are still coming in. I’ll give you a couple of examples:

This woman is self-confident, sexy and classy. She put a smile on my face today. This is what a real woman looks like. She should be on the cover!!

That is one of the most wonderful magazine photos I have ever seen. I was one of the perfect girls in my 20’s. 3 babies later and 20 years later I am far from it. That young women in the photo shows all of us we are beautiful and more importantly, shows the world we are all beautiful. I agree with what she says. If you are comfortable with yourself, others will find you beautiful too……Thank you for showing what a REAL woman looks like to the rest of the world.

But alas not all the comments were nice:

Honestly, when I saw the photo in the magazine, I was turned off. I understand that women want to feel comfortable in their skin – but fitness is important. Larger waistlines equal a greater risk for illness and disease. Romanticising larger builds only contributes to poor health – and its justification. Eat the brownie onece a month, not once a week.

So, what do you think? Let me know in the comments.

Love skinny jeans? Never seem to find jeans that are skinny enough for you? Same here. But I have found them! Jeans so skinny,I was left sitting



on the floor of the changing room trying to pull the bottoms of them over my feet. But were did I find these skinny jeans? It may be a store you normally wouldn’t try…

Delia’s! I found them at Delia’s! You may think this store is just for tweens and teens, but just because you don’t like their shirts doesn’t mean that they’re jeans don’t fit. They actually have plenty of sizes. If you are lucky enough to be a 00, they have those, and all the way up to a 19. And if your worried about super dooper skinny jeans, they also have just regular skinny jeans, but don’t worry, even the regular skinny jeans are still plenty skinny. Here’s and example of their super skinny jeans, and here’s and example of their regular skinny jeans.

So wear skinny jeans, because now you know where to find them!

Imagine you’re at the mall, and you have a $20 dollar bill in your pocket. You go buy a bagel and a coffee for around

Next time skip the nugguts and make a P.B.& J. sandwhich at home.

Next time skip the nuggets and make a P.B.& J. sandwhich at home.

7 bucks. You head into your favorite store and instantly fall in love with a shirt. You look down at the price and it’s… $15 bucks, 2 dollars more then what you have. Stupid bagel…

Sound like you? If our answer is yeah (and don’t lie, we’ve all been there) then you definitely need to read this post.

My guide to buying more, and saving more.

When you know you are on a budget, and only have a certain amount of money to spend, lets say $20 dollars, eat before you go out. This way you don’t spend money on food. Added bonus, most home-cooked foods are a lot less calories then greasy mall food. Then… well that’s basically it.

So buy more, save more, smile more, and weigh less.
